Get to Know the Aloe Vera

One of the easiest to grow… and good for sunburn too.

Break off a small piece of the Aloe Vera’s thick leaves and squeeze the juice onto minor burns and skin troubles for quick soothing relief.

Position
In pots or in the garden, it loves full sun or part shade. Just make sure to keep the crown above the ground.

Watering
Weekly water in summer, less in winter. Can handle neglect.

Care
Doesn’t mind an annual fertiliser. You can re-pot the younglings as they poke their heads through.
